Be aware that there are two editions of Schoenbaum's *Shakespeare's
Lives*-- the original published in 1970 [838 pp.] and a second edition
published in 1991 [612 pp.].  The second edition is revised and updated
with a new chapter, but condenses or omits some material which I was sad
to see go. If you have the second edition, see the end of the Preface
[p. xi] for details.

I recommend reading the first edition, waiting a year, then reading the
second edition. Think of it as a two-text work, like Dr Faustus or King
Lear.

I was fortunate to have taken two of Professor Schoenbaum's graduate
courses.

One evening, he visited the English course I was teaching at a
high-security prison in Maryland.  He spoke to the class for two hours
on Othello.

After that evening, I recommend reading even his grocery list!!
